I am a USAT Level I Certified Triathlon coach, focused on working with triathletes new to the sport or making the jump from short-course to long-course (70.3 and 140.6) distances. I offer 1:1 coaching remotely using the the TrainingPeaks platform along with regular, scheduled communication via phone or video chat. I also provide consultations on season planning and race strategy.
I am a coach with D3 Multisport and Director of the D3 Tri Squad, for individual athletes looking to be part of a virtual team. I earned my BSE at Princeton University and an MBA at University of California, Berkeley. I have been swimming my entire life, added running in my 20s and triathlon in my 30s.
I love the sport of triathlon because you have to work for it. You have to work HARD for it. And there’s nothing I love more than setting a big goal, working hard for it and achieving something so big you thought it was kinda impossible.
I also think it’s really important to find ways to mark achievement that don’t have anything to do with the clock and your finish time. For most of us this is a hobby, and we spend way too much time on this particular hobby to walk away disappointed. It’s important to be able to find your “Wins” throughout your training and all along the race course, without ever looking at that clock.
There are obstacles we encounter in training: weeks we lack motivation, calf strains, thunderstorms on long bike days, colds and flus, work crises and family diversions. Staying on task and finding a way to get it done is a Win. Showing up at the start line after 12, 16, 20, 24 weeks of Hard Work is a Win. Fighting for every meter in the water and every mile on the bike and the run is a win.
I love helping athletes find those Wins that are less obvious than the clock and treasure them as much or more than what the clock says.

My only requirement is that you, as the athlete, will communicate with me regarding your workouts and other relevant life info. An athlete-coach relationship is nothing without good communication!
